Looking for 8th, 9th and 10th graders interested in the WV Ambassadors Camp! Entering its ninth year, Ambassadors Camp provides the participants with opportunities to learn more about the state with programs at the State Capitol and about college life while they stay in University of Charleston dorms. In addition to the normal eighth-grade camp we hold every year, we will be holding a camp for ninth-grade students and a camp for tenth-grade students. These camps are being held to make up for the camps that these students were not able to attend due to COVID-19. The camp for ninth-graders will be held on June 23-26, 2022. The camp for tenth-graders will be held June 27-30, 2022. The 8th grade camp will be held June 19-22, 2022. While at camp, the students stay in dorms and eat in the cafeteria at the University of Charleston. They ride school buses to their activities and have 24-hour teacher chaperones during the camp. West Virginia Ambassador Camp is completely funded and operated through grants from the Department of Arts, Culture and History, the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission and the West Virginia Department of Education. Because of this support, camp is entirely free for participants. The West Virginia Department of Education provides technical support and the camp is coordinated and run by the West Virginia Department of Arts, Culture and History. Please let your principal know if you are interested in applying for this camp. The superintendent can submit two nominations and two alternate nominations for each grade level.

Oakvale School has enjoyed a visit from the STEM trailer this week. They've been involved in lots of fun lessons and activities about water: the properties of it, the movements of it, and the water cycle. The STEM trailer got its start this spring, but will be expanding to other elementary schools next fall!

Last week, Mr. Toman visited Mrs. Vaught's science class at Spanishburg. The lesson was on types of energy and energy systems. The four different stations were tone generator, hand-crank generator, rubber band banjo, and hand rubbing on ice. In each station, the students had to describe the system, identify what the energy source, where the energy was stored, and what evidence of energy was present.
